Happy 1st birthday L!

I totally dig the Korean culture. From their delicious food (Mmm.. pork bone soup) down to all the unique traditions. Heck, even their greeting, ie, bowing makes the most sense to me, no worries about a handshake and passing over germs I say. But seriously, given that I have had the chance to capture a lot of their cultural aspects over the years, I think it’s pretty cool. So it’s great to see the younger gen parents like Gina and Paul continue to carry on these traditions for their family.

When Gina first contacted us in late fall last year to set up a family lifestyle session, if I could remember correctly, the weather didn’t cooperate and she decided to save the shoot for 2014, for her daughter’s first birthday. So on the day of the shoot, the event was at Seoul House and everything was set up perfectly. I was surprised to see a handful of familiar faces at this party, which are the same people that recommended me – many thanks guys. When I finally met Gina and Paul in person they where super nice and their daughters were totally adorable. For this party, they had all the traditional games, outfits, and desserts to celebrate their youngest daughter’s first birthday. They also had a cake set up for their eldest daughter K, as I assume their birthdates are close together.

After the food we stepped outside for some quick pics underneath the overhang as it was about to rain.
To Gina and Paul, thanks so much guys for having me capture this important milestone for your family, you guys rock. Here are some pics from the day.

Your Friend, Leon

Celebrating One Year

It’s been a busy few months for us with a lot of great captures that I’m finally getting a chance to play catch up on posting. I’m excited to post a handful of awesome first year celebrations along with newborns and of course hitting full swing into our wedding season. So before I head out this morning (actually just got back from an early ride.. can’t feel my fingers still) as we have a busy a day ahead of us, I wanted to post this cute first birthday celebration of this handsome little fella.

Little man C parent’s went all out for his son’s first birthday. This private party was held at a sweet and perfect place where all of C’s family and friends were able to celebrate with him. One of the spotlights of C’s party was the killer dessert table made by C’s aunt Maureen, all themed with Sesame Street characters. Maureen you got some mad delicious talent! As you will see in the pics was that there was so much love for this little guy from all of his friends and family.

To my friends Dave and Elna, love seeing you both and thanks always for having me capture these special events for your family. Gi and I are stoked about Carter’s upcoming brother and can’t wait to meet the little guy when the time comes =) Here are some pics from the party as the rest are on your way.

Your Friend, Leon
